Founded in 2011, Luigi Sardo is a small brand run by one guy named Markus. For 2019, Markus is releasing some classic low cuts with a European shape, a take on the original Sardo Classic.
The brand began as a side business while Markus was studying at university in Australia’s Gold Coast. During his stay, he embraced the beach lifestyle and walked barefoot for almost a whole year. Influenced by this lifestyle, he set out to design shoes that were minimal, yet durable enough to withstand a non tropical climate, such as in his hometown of Toronto, Canada.
Markus has designed almost every style of footwear, from slippers to boots and sneakers to formal-wear.
